"I don't believe in ghosts...I don't believe in vampires...I don't believe in demons, angels, astrology, werewolves, JFK conspiracy theories, Feng shui, utopias, God, Satan, pyramid power, Freud, Marx, Buddha, prayer, the power of positive thinking, poltergeists, reincarnation, UFO's, Bigfoot, grapho-analysis, whole grain cereals, Jesus, Patsy Ramsey's innocence, an afterlife or...fill in the blank...I may believe in the Beatles. The jury's still out on that. But I definitely do not believe in Yoko. I am, in John Keats's words, '...certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart's affections and the truth of Imagination.'" -- Dan Simmons
